Dr. Bharat Barai said I understand that we got little less than expected results but brought into focus many positives from the election results of Indian Lok Sabha in 2024. As BJP emerged as the single largest party with the combined opposition seat count being less than the single largest party, BJP. Further, no single largest party during the coalition era ever got a seat count as large as that of the BJP in 2024. BJP’s vote share in 2024 is the same as that of 2019, so its popularity has not changed. Moreover, BJP is forming the state government in Odisha for the first time and BJP won a seat in Kerala for the first time. In Telangana, BJP has doubled its seats from 2019 earning a big vote share with improved vote share in Tamil Nadu. BJP swept Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Delhi and Odisha.

There is no one reason for getting fewer seats and BJP as a party will assess the reasons and will make a course correction. But to our delight, Modi ji is taking oath for the 3rd consecutive time and he will continue his reforms and development work unhindered, he added further.

BSC President Haribhai Patel thanked all and said, “Your tremendous efforts in call campaigning, video creation, tweeting, social media sharing, and on-ground work. Your dedication has truly made a meaningful impact in the places where we focused our efforts for this crucial election.”
